Why feed raw?

2 CommentsSaturday, 20 January 2018  |  theyloveit

Now there's the question!

Raw is natural to animals. Cooked, tinned and processed food is not.

Raw is a truly healthy option. Providing you maintain a balanced diet of 80% protein, 10% bone and 10% offal (usually consisting of 5% liver and the other 5% can be any secreting organ such as Kidney, Pancreas etc) then there is no reason why your dog, cat, ferret etc won't absolutely thrive on it. They should be on at least 4 different proteins such as chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, fish, rabbit, venison etc which should be varied over time.

Raw fed dogs require less food, the food is high in nutrients and their bodies can process more % of it, therefore there is less waste than kibble or tinned fed dogs. Their waste is much smaller, firmer and best of all far less smelly!

Providing you take all the usual hygiene precautions when you are handling raw, then there are no risks.

A raw fed dog will develop stomach acid levels which will deal with breaking down bone content and tackling any bacteria that can be found in raw food which would be harmful to us but not to them.

Is it natural for an animal, born with paws and claws to eat food from a tin or kibble from a sack? Would they be able to cook their food if we didn't do it for them? No. Of course not. So why do we, as a nation of self confessed dog lovers, still feed our dogs this rubbish? More and more dogs fed on kibble are becoming allergic to storage mites for example, present in many kibbles. They develop allergies to grain, wheat, cereal etc that is present in many dry foods as bulking agents, and don't get me started on what goes into those tins of stinking gloop!

Go on, give it a try. You will not look back!

My mastiffs thrive on it, would never go back to man made rubbish

Been feeding my two raw for over 2 years now. Happy, healthy and works out cheaper than the old dry kibble. Never, ever going back.

I have been using ĎThey Love Ití for a number of years. The quality of the meat has remained at a high standard while the choice of products has grown. My dogs have never refused anything I have bought, that in itself is excellent as far as Iím concerned.
The delivery is fantastic. I know when I order, my meat will be here within 48 hours, so I never run out.
I wouldnít buy from anywhere else... The prices are all very reasonable, the choice and delivery is great and my dogs ĎLove Ití. Thank You.

Please donít be put off by the 3* review. We have been feeding our Dogue de Bordeaux these for almost a year and in all orders the majority are large whole chicken necks. He loves them and they keep his teeth pearly white.

Been using they love it for years now. It just keeps getting better and better. Canít beat the value and the delivery is second to none. Iíve recommended TLI to everyone I know who feeds raw. Keep it up!

Makes an excellent addition to diet
Saturday, 21 April 2018  |  Pauline

I used to give my dog raw meat on the bone, switched to the minced meat in blocks which he loves just as much but don't give him much stimulation as he gobbles it up in a flash. These whole fish took him longer to eat and gave him a new challenge, as well as making a healthy addition to his diet.

My dog loves it!

I've been ordering your 10kg packs for some time now and my dog enjoys all your products. Thought I would try the veg mix for a change. Normally the blocks are just right for 2 days, cut into quarters (a quarter at each serving). My only criticism with this one is that the blocks are much bigger, more like 3 days' worth each, and don't fit as easily into my freezer drawers!
